Looking for Burke family information. Interested in hearing from anyone who may have known family or know living relatives, or may have started a family history tree.

My grandfather's (father's father) name was Evans Burke - from Christ Church, Barbados.
He last lived in Silver Sands, Christ Church - died in 1982.
Was married to Millicent Best. Believed Millicent's family also from Christ Church.
Thank you.

My g-g-grandfather was a John Stuart Burke (born 1864 in St Vincent). We are guessing he moved with his family to Barbados as a child since he had a Barbadian accent. In the late 1880s he moved to Trinidad. We have no information on the rest of his family other than his father had been with the police and his mother's family name was Stuart. I think Burke is a common name in Barbados so it is possible we are from different branches of the family.
